It is possible to “Make your hospital stay a better experience”!

It is possible to “Make your hospital stay a better experience”!

Being in hospital, most people feel anxiety and stress, provoked by a lack of information and a vulnerability of patient’s position.

This was a concern for Monika Pytlarz, a PhD student from Sano, and her sister Karolina Pytlarz, who is making her master’s in nursing, when they were taking part in the Cracow EIT Health i-Days hackathon “Make your hospital stay a better experience”. 

The innovative sisters introduced the concept of MedJarvis, a voice chatbot that accompanies the patient and addresses the problem of incomprehensibly provided information or insufficient patient education about their condition and treatment. Among other functions, MedJarvis is meant to send notifications about medications and rehabilitation to patients and encourage exercise in an attempt to combat the growing problem of bedridden patients! 

The team won the first prize for this brilliant idea at the Kraków event and, as a result, presented their idea at the Winner’s Event in Barcelona. 

In Barcelona, Monika and Karolina had a great opportunity to dive into the world of the entrepreneurial mindset and AI solutions in healthcare and present their idea to experts in innovative health solutions.  

We would like to thank Klaster LifeScience Krakow for organisation of the Kraków EIT Health i-Days.
